it has to be shn, insist on shn or flac, I would hopwe and expect that any artist who 'gets it' would prefer to do shn or flac or some lossless format...
since they are promoting making copies for friends... and almost certainly people will rip the files from an audio disk, definitely, certainly, introducing errors to the 'food chain' if done from mp3 or any other lossy codec

Yeah I saw that and thought it was damn cool. I wonder if I bring my own 256mb usb drive to a concert if I'll have to buy a proprietary drive, then the show? I'm hoping that any usb drive would do and they'll make the money of the music :). I also wonder how they'll encode the show in order to fit it on a usb drive. Those things aren't cheap yet (and shows aren't that small at decent quality). They'll have to make it affordable to make it profitable. Still a wicked cool idea though for sho'

also, some boards have terrible mixes to listen to because of adjustments that have to be made for the band to sound good in that particular room. how would you know before you paid that the board wasn't awful?

I was at the Allman Bros. show in Raleigh in August, and I bought the Instant Live CDs. I believe it's done with onstage mics (could be wrong), but it has more ambience than a straight SBD. Anyway, it sounds good, and now I have a recording of Branford Marsalis with the Bros. If they use the onstage mics, it'll likely sound pretty good.
